Transparency Market Research presents this most up-to-date research on “Hot and Cold Therapy Packs Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2016 – 2024“
Hot and cold therapies are considered one of the easiest, effective, and least expensive treatment to relieve pain and swelling in different parts of the body. These are rational, passive, non-invasive forms of therapy to manage pain. Heat therapy leads to vasodilation, which in turn increases the blood flow in the affected tissues. The rise in blood flow in the target area provides required oxygen and other nutrients, thus accelerating the healing process, while the heat reduces muscle spasm and relaxes stretched muscles leading to pain relief. Heat or thermotherapy is generally used to treat chronic pain such as low back pain, spinal, neck pain, neuropathic pain, and other muscular spasms. Cold therapy or cryotherapy calms down damaged tissues, causes vasoconstriction, which reduces blood circulation and also numbs the nerves decreasing inflammation, pain, and muscle spasm. Cold or cryotherapy is generally used to treat acute pain caused due to injuries such as runner’s knee and freshly pulled muscle.
The global hot and cold therapy packs market is anticipated to be driven by a number of factors such as steep growth in chronic musculoskeletal disorders, increase in global trauma and accident cases, and rise in inclination for non-invasive pain management approaches. Increase in the geriatric population vulnerable to chronic illnesses is also escalating demand for hot and cold therapy packs globally. A report published by the Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations (UN) in 2013 stated that the number of elderly persons (aged 60 years and above) is estimated to more than double, from 841 million in 2013 to over 2 billion in 2050. In addition, growing stress and unhealthy lifestyles leading to increase in number of patients with neck, back, shoulder, and spinal problems is expected to drive the market. Furthermore, increasing research and development activities by key players to develop new products is likely to boost market growth.
